"Everyone get out!" Su-hyeok yelled.

Then he grabbed my hand and started pulling me towards the door.

I quickly pick up the baseball bat, to not go out there into the open without a weapon.

After we all had run out the door, Cheong-san slams the door shut as the zombies inside break through our barrier.

Once outside, everyone could finally stop and rest a bit.

I sit down next to Su-hyeok, my heart still racing.

Seeing On-jo continue talking to her father, the guilt about Joon-yeong washes over me once again.

Tears begin running down my face again.

How could I have let him die?

"Hey, N/n. What's wrong?" I hear Su-hyeok whisper as he wraps his arms around me comfortingly.

I can't tell him that it's my fault.

He'll think I'm a monster.

I am a monster...

"I don't know..." I sniffle.

"I think it's because I was so scared in there" I lie.

He sighs and hugs me tighter.

I look at his face and his expression shows, that he isn't believing me.

"Don't worry. As long as we're together, nothing bad will happen to us." He tells me, trying to reassure me.

But I don't know what to think.

I should leave the group, they're better off without me.

Even though I was scared of leaving, I knew that I wouldn't be able to look at the others, knowing that Joon-yeong died because I was too slow.

"You know, Su-hyeok, I really love you" I tell him quietly.

"I love you too, a lot. I don't know what I'd do without you" He says, kissing my forehead afterwards.

I feel bad about his words, knowing that I had made my mind up.

I'm going to leave them.

They'll die if I stay.

"Kids, are you okay?" On-jo's father asks us suddenly.

He looks at me and Su-hyeok first as we slowly let go of each other.

I slightly nod, standing up from the ground.

His eyes scan the rest of us.

I look at the others and at their sad expressions.

Everyone was heartbroken that Joon-yeong had had to leave us.

I look down in shame.

If I had been faster, he'd be here too.

"Yeah" Dae-su answers.

"Good" Mr. Nam says.

Then him and Cheong-san exchange a few words before he hugs him.

Slowly Mr. Nam turns around to me.

"Y/n." He says.

I nod before he opens his arms and hugs me.

I hug him back tightly.

"Mr. Nam...I..." I don't know what to say, so I shut my mouth again.

After he lets go of me, he turns to everyone else.

"Okay. Are you all able to run?" He asks.

  "Yeah" Dae-su and Wu-jin answer at the same time.

"Good" Mr. Nam sighs.
